My deep love affair with Alexander Wang began a little over four years ago. I was in my last year of college at NYU and working as an intern/slave three days a week at one of the most powerful fashion PR agencies in the city, Bismarck Phillips. We repped dream clients like Preen, Erin Fetherston and Derek Lam, not to mention a slew of other highly respected designers. In February of 2009 alone, I think we were responsible for planning more than 20 shows at New York Fashion week. Yeahhh, that was hell.
Despite my utter lack of sleep and caffeine highs though, all that hard work finally paid off when we got to attend several of the shows. Your girl (me) sat front row at Tadashi, tried to play it cool in front of celebs at Catherine Malandrino and fell hard for Alexander Wang as soon as the music turned on. The energy was insane! It was more like a rock/rap concert up in there than anything else!
Of course I loved all the black leather jackets and badass ankle boots he sent down the runway. I specifically remember pining after these babies for forever, but I never actually took the plunge and bought them. Boo
Now, thanks to my boyfriend’s mom, I’m posing with a beautiful bright blue leather bag from the man himself: Mr. Wang. My American Apparel cobalt belt happened to match it perfectly, so I built my outfit from there, topping things off with a white hat by J. Lo (I know, I know…don’t judge me.)
Unfortunately for me but lucky for you, I’m selling this brand new bag, as his mom bought it off eBay not realizing how big it is. It’s sold out everywhere else (to my knowledge at least), so if you’re interested, contact me for pricing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
